Having resigned to the facts I am not a competitive athlete, as I do not have gym privilages as often as I'd like, I do not have money for all the best food I want to eat all the time, and even if I did have all that I still have a mortal physical body that will decompose in a finite manner . . . I see some of the physical activities that are non-competetive and require the least amount of effort, but the most amount of physical maintenance for what they are.
The most important "passive" physical activity is balance. Proper seated meditation in lotus, sitting still, only after rocking back and forth and feeling your own physical center of gravity, applied here
And then I see understanding the principles of stretching while maintaining balance:
And then lifting, stretching, while maintaining balance :
And then I finally begin to see strength results I never saw while younger and all that institutionalized indoctrination about competitiveness. Because you see? It starts with the simplicity of maintaining Balance, balance, balance alone without any one else's micromanagement getting in the way. Whether you're just a monk sitting in sone Budhist monastary, a yoga instructor, or a powerlifter. The body must be balanced in equilibrium.
I like those straps/chains that catch the bar from falling. I've never seen that before. Personally don't have the patience for all that stuff although I would probably benefit from it. My main goal I think is health. Not very competitive at all. I like basing my goals on personal bests.
